Do you need an automobile accident Lawyer?

Automobile accidents, car wrecks, and vehicle collisions, are happening in ever increasing numbers. There is also growing concern about vehicle safety issues, and the personal injury suffered by innocent, law abiding citizens. Don't be a victim of negligent drivers or automobile manufacturers making defective products. If you have suffered from an auto accident, consult an attorney and know your rights.

In 1997, there were 5,355 fatal - and countless more serious injury - auto accidents involving heavy trucks. That was 218 more deaths than the year before. In addition, although large trucks account for only three percent of all registered vehicles, collisions involving large trucks accounted for nine percent of all 1997 traffic fatalities. And while many may tout that accident rates have fallen since 1991, in actuality, the number of fatalities has increased. It is small wonder that concern about the safety of trucks and buses on our road by the public, Congress, and the industry continues to grow.

Automobile accidents involving commercial trucks and buses:

(From National Transportation Safety Board, NTSB)
Our highways are reaching critical mass. Many of our interstate roads - which now serve as major truck corridors - are over capacity and often are not designed for heavy vehicular traffic. The number of trucks and the amount of freight they transport continue to increase. In the 1980s, about 130,000 heavy trucks were manufactured annually. In 1999, that number will exceed 220,000. In addition, these trucks are becoming bigger and more powerful. Thirty years ago, semi-trailers were about 35 feet long. Now, they average 45 to 53 feet and they are about a foot wider. In fact, not only are more heavy trucks being produced; more light trucks, vans, and sport utility vehicles are being built each year. And, while the number of vehicles on the highways increased by 16% between 1986 and 1996, the mass of those vehicles increased by 20%.

Motorcoach traffic only compounds the problem. In an average year, more than 360 million bus passengers travel 28 billion passenger miles in North America. About 945 million of those miles were by motorcoach. The American Bus Association estimates that there are about 4,000 companies operating 26,000 to 28,000 commercial buses being used for charters, tours, regular route service, and special operations. Of special significance, children and our senior citizens are often the greatest users of these motorcoaches. As these segments of our population increase, as they are projected to do, so will their reliance on this mode of transportation. It is imperative that we ensure that they are afforded the highest level of safety.
